Description

The Ed Portal and FAS Diversity Relations and Communications are pleased to present a screening of acclaimed documentary Jewel's Catch One followed by a conversation with director C. Fitz and Sheehan Scarborough, Director of BGLTQ Student Life at Harvard. Jewel's Catch One celebrates the legacy of a legendary Los Angeles LGBT nightclub, Catch One, and the life-changing impact its owner had on her community. Jewel Thais-Williams broke down racial and cultural barriers to build what would become the oldest black-owned disco in America.
